So for me I chose Roy Lichtenstein because I loved comic books, and his style was similar to comic artists, not to mention I see a lot of his pieces in restaurants and stuff so I was familiar with it. For me the images I found interesting were the “Grrrrrrrrr!” art piece of the dog and the popeye the sailorman piece. I decided to do a dog for mine because it was the first animal that came to mind. After knowing what I was gonna do I just started sketching from scratch and withvwhatvcamr tobmind when I thought of a dog.  So when my first sketch was finished I added noise art in order to see what affect the dog was making, which is one of  the aspects that are included in almost all of Roy Lichtenstein’s art. Next I divided up my photo 1 inch x 1 inch so I could blow it up on poster, so I increased the dimension x1.5. After that I sketched the image on the board with a 2H pencil. After I finished I used Faber-Castell pens to go over the sketches and erase any stray marks. After this I erased all of my border lines, and used acrylic paint to paint my art piece. I chose yellow for the background because it made it stand out because of the brightness,and red for the “noise action marks” because it was a primary color and it looked good with yellow and because it also stood out in the yellow background, and for the dog’s skin I used light brown and peach, and for the gums and tongue red to make it simple looking. Since some of the lines had paint on them I went over them again with the Faber-Castell and after that I was finished.

SENSORY: Kerri recommended that I color all the dark parts:the mouth, the nose, etc. with the sharpie pen instead of painting it, along with making my crosshatching lines simpler by ,asking a bigger dark section that covered the main area of the shading.
FORMAL/TECHNICAL: Ms. Johnson recommended that I use yellow for the back ground in order to balance the color of the painting and have some light parts and some dark parts and because it was a color Roy Lichtenstein used.
EXPRESSIVE: Anna Katherine said I should
-Elements and Principles of Design: Emphasis and line , is applied very well in this piece because the simplicity of the background yellow color makes the dog stand out along with the red “noise action marks” which give emphasis to what action is being taken place, the dog barking. Line is used in many methods, including hatching, crosshatching and different size lines, some thick some thin in order to make the image look sharp.
